michael Barnes - Wed, Jul 1st, 2015 2:16 PM PDT
Looking forward to hearing more of you in Southern California

Jan Valego - Sun, Jun 28th, 2015 10:07 AM PDT
Will you ever book a tour in the Northeast? I have been a fan since I first heard your music back in the 70's. I am now 56 and seeing you perform live is on my bucket list. In appears that most of your tour dates are on the West coast or Europe. BTW, BB King, I'm sure, would have been a huge fan of your music, and thrilled that he inspired such perfection in you.

Ron - Sat, Jun 27th, 2015 9:35 AM PDT
A new album "Find A Way To Care" is to be released in September! Keep 'em comming John.

Brian Whiteley - Tue, Jun 23rd, 2015 4:01 AM PDT
who is john singing about on the song kokomo

Richard Brown - Mon, Jun 22nd, 2015 2:42 AM PDT
Is it true that way back in 1965 John wrote a song for Marianne Faithfull if so can you recall the title?

Rachel - Sun, Jun 14th, 2015 9:12 PM PDT
Was at the 6/13 gig at the Cannery. Bravo. Saw you at the Filmore East many moons ago. You really rocked then and still going strong.

Tim Hancock - Sun, Jun 14th, 2015 4:35 PM PDT
i was wondering why you weren't @ your RRHOF induction....conflicting tour dates?....i would have loved to seen you accept your well-deserved award...

David Mattern - Thu, Jun 11th, 2015 1:31 PM PDT
After seeing his show at Green Bay Wisconsin in 2000 I bought a t-shirt from him and I told him that I had John Mayall albums before I had Beatle albums. He smiled and signed the shirt. It's true. He is the Man! If we lived in the same city our names would be next to each other in the phone book. That's pretty cool. And, my brother's name is John.

Dave Miller - Tue, Jun 9th, 2015 6:13 AM PDT
Would love to hear John do Larry Campbell's "When I Go Away" from Levon Helm Electric Dirt.

John has been my favorite blues artisit since I was 14. Have seen him many times in Minneapolis at the Whiskey

Dinu Logoz - Sat, Jun 6th, 2015 1:37 AM PDT
Ron Zwang: The bass solo on TO A PRINCESS was played by Larry Taylor, that's for sure.

Chris - Thu, Jun 4th, 2015 5:55 PM PDT
This is indeed gushing, but it must be said - the Live In 1967 cd is simply tremendous. As much as I love the classic studio recordings from that era (and I really do - they are what made blues "click" for me), I think Live In 1967 might even trump those for me. It's completely subjective, but I love the lofi sound - raw, gritty and muscular, which is how I like blues... and Peter Green's solo on Stormy Monday in particular is, indeed, supernatural. Gushing aside, many thanks to Mr. Mayall and all involved for making these recordings available.

Pete Sargeant - Thu, Jun 4th, 2015 6:06 AM PDT
I love the enthusiasm of the fans on this site ! If you would like to read my chat with John on the new archive tapes album, head to justlistentothis.co.uk - he is a very special guy and deserves your support - Pete S

dennis l. davies - Thu, Jun 4th, 2015 3:17 AM PDT
i saw the bluesbreakers in swansea top rank.it was university rag week,i think it was 1967 ,was peter playing lead .i can,t rember the date or the line up.the new live 1967 album brought it all back. peters on fire.such an important piece of history.peter has no equal.

Ron Zwang - Mon, Jun 1st, 2015 12:13 AM PDT
I'd like to redirect my question of 4/19 about "For a Princess." One of the bass players was dominate hence my question who was playing "lead bass." So which one was it?

Tom M - Sun, May 31st, 2015 2:51 PM PDT
When are they going to put John in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? Has he ever been nominated?

His induction is long overdue.

Brian healy - Sat, May 30th, 2015 4:30 PM PDT
Tickets booked for Ronnie Scott's lat gig. Hope Rocky can do Walikin on Sumset! Look forward to speaking to Greg again .

Stuart Young - Fri, May 29th, 2015 8:51 PM PDT
I love going to all your shows and seeing the progression over the last 20+ years of your devotion to "keeping the blues alive" by involving new people. The wife and I are taking a 2+ week trip out of central California around through Montana to see a new Grandson, saw you were playing at the Tower in Bend. Picked up 4 tickets and I will surprise my other son and his girlfriend that are traveling with us when we arrive in Bend. Can't wait!!!!

Wes - Fri, May 29th, 2015 6:26 PM PDT
Saw you guys in Clearwater Florida at the Capitol Theater on the 15th. It was totally fantastic (despite the sporadic technical difficulties)! Best blues show I've ever seen. I've listened to you for over 30 years now, but seeing you guys live is what it's all about. I missed you many times at Skipper's Smokehouse down thru the years, and all I can say is the Capitol Theater is the kind of venue that you should have been playing in all along. It certainly befits an artist of your caliber. Did you real justice. I'll definitely be there the next time you roll into town. Cheers....!!

Michele Wigglesworth - Thu, May 28th, 2015 6:31 AM PDT
Hello John - I am working on the family history. You are my 6th cousin. My mum was a Mayall before she married. Rik Mayall the comic who died last year was my sixth cousin once removed. You are also linked to him. Our ancestor is John Mayall of Tameside.

Sue Haslam - Thu, May 21st, 2015 3:42 PM PDT
So excited! Just got tickets for Ronnie Scott's on Nov 3rd! Hoping there will be other UK dates following, but at least I know we'll get to see you once this year.

Dear Ilona (May 19th) - Wed, May 20th, 2015 11:14 AM PDT
Thank you for your comment. As Stu says we have posted John's tribute to BB King on our Facebook page and we're working on getting it up on the website too, so we should have it added here in the next couple of days. We apologize for the delay! - johnmayall.com

stu - Tue, May 19th, 2015 7:21 AM PDT
llona Sallan-check out the very nice tribute on the facebook page. There is no way John is going to overlook the passing of BB. Do your homework.

Ilona Sallan - Tue, May 19th, 2015 6:01 AM PDT
No tribute to B.B. King on your homepage? What a pity!!!!!

Ray - Tue, May 19th, 2015 4:03 AM PDT
I have just received "Live In 1967" and have noticed that according to my 1967 diary (the only one I've got) that I was at two of the dates. 27th April at The Marquee my diary says, "The electricity was switched off during the encore because they had exceeded the time allowed, the audience did not approve!". I was also at "Bluesville" Manor House on 5th May one of my favourite venues. Ron and Nanda ran "Bluesville" and John would bring them records from America which they would play during the break.

Wayne Weber - Sun, May 17th, 2015 1:00 PM PDT
Melbourne, Fl. Concert was FANTASTIC!!
Super good mix. Every band member exceptional. Wide selection of material and styles. John Mayall rocked blues harp, keyboards and guitar. Loved his vocals.
Tight set , greatly appreciate them coming to Melbourne.

John Boyer - Sun, May 17th, 2015 10:08 AM PDT
Hadn't seen JM since 73' at old Eddie Grahmn Sports Center outside Orlando. Last nite at King Center was totally different gig. Cannot believe the energy and obvious love of the Blues Mr. Mayall still has, and the guys he's playing with blew me away. Just finished reading Bio's and I see why they were so good, what resume's. Great show and really enjoying the primitive recording of the Mayall/Mac recording from 67' that was offered at the show. Thankyou Sir for keeping this great music alive, and for passing it down to freat young Musicians like the guys in your current band. God Bless!

ken maass - Sat, May 16th, 2015 2:02 PM PDT
Great show in Ponte Vedra this past Weds. night, John. You and your bandmates were terrific! Audience was really pumped! Keep up the positive vibes and continued success!

JK Behan - Sat, May 16th, 2015 7:46 AM PDT
we were at the King Center last night, really enjoyed it. you guys were tight. I thought it was a great send off for Blues Boy. keep playin' the BLUES!

Mr. Janusz Muszak - Fri, May 15th, 2015 8:18 PM PDT
Superb 5/15/2015 show in Melbourne, FL! John, you not only play the music, you feel the music and your audiences with you.

arthur waczkowski - Fri, May 15th, 2015 12:37 PM PDT
John, Saw your perfomance Wednesday night at Ponte Vedra. I met you before the concert and sorry I did not recognize you at 1st without your facial hair. I appologize for that. I wanted to let you know that I was looking forward to this concert for awhile and must say it was worth it. Thank you for the many years of great music and such a good concert. Art

milton devereaux - Thu, May 14th, 2015 3:18 PM PDT
saw the band last night at ponte vedra concert hall, it was a blast. these bluesbreakers ROCK ! I would love to hear other versions of

i saw you for the first time i sweden 1968 with mick Taylor..
Lovely consert!!!! did you remember your first visit to sweden? places+ or any live-recordings from this tour?

Dinu Logoz - Sat, May 9th, 2015 4:46 AM PDT
Hi Ron. I am that Dinu Logoz who wrote the Mayall Biography THE BLUES CRUSADER. The book should be released around next September on a world wide basis. It was a great pleasure writing it, also thanks to the kind help of John himself.
I am sure you will like it and learn a lot of new things about John and his music when you'll read it.

Tim Pratt - Fri, May 8th, 2015 7:01 PM PDT
With all of this discussion regarding "Archive" recordings I seem to remember that 10+ years ago there was talk that a tape of a Bluesbreakers w/ Clapton show from Scotland had surfaced. Does John Mayall have this tape in his vaults?

Tim Pratt - Fri, May 8th, 2015 6:54 PM PDT
No need to apologize for the lack of info regarding the recording dates. I'm just happy to hear the music and like a few others have said I would liked it even more if complete shows had been released.....Tim

Charles Neil - Fri, May 8th, 2015 1:14 PM PDT
Mr. Mayall, I've been a fan for more years than either of us wouldn't want in front of us. I just listened to Gimme One More Day again and I hope you got the plug in the jug. Best to you. If you see Walter Trout, yell him he's being prayed for. Pax. Charlie

Dear Richard (April 26th) and Ray and Tim, - Fri, May 8th, 2015 11:46 AM PDT
Thank you for your questions and we're happy to hear that you're enjoying the CD! We did some checking and it seems very likely that the dates aren't correct, especially the 1st Feb date, but as Ray says this far down the line it's very difficult to get the accurate information. It is certain that they were recorded at those clubs and around April/May 1967 and that may be as clear as we can get at this point. We're sorry that we can´t give you the exact information! - johnmayall.com

bruce s kelso - Fri, May 8th, 2015 8:05 AM PDT
hi to all.just got the live 67 cd.what great time period.not happy that it is a composite show.own the whole 27th show.would of liked all 5 shows put out as a nice box set better.cant find any bare wires group live except whats on the primal solo.my favorite lines up are.that and the crusade period. are my favorite. years ago i was in contact with tom who taped thoses five shows told him to ask john bout putting them out them out look like he did.its a shame that we cant have all five complete.check out his bands 1970 lp called wild blues by john the revelator its on the pseudonym label cd released in 2003 and as bob the bear hite said dont forget to boogie.

Tim Pratt - Thu, May 7th, 2015 3:29 PM PDT
Just checked Pete Frame's Rock Family Trees book and John Mayall's 1988 12" "Last Time" single with an updated Frame family tree:
Aynsley Dunbar- Sept. 1966> April 1967
Mick Fleetwood- April 1967> May 1967
Micky Waller- temp fill in for a few gigs
Keef Hartley- June 1967> April 1968..

Ray - Thu, May 7th, 2015 12:47 PM PDT
I thought I would be able to help Richard Brown (Apr 26) as I actually have my 1967 diary! Although I saw John Mayall 26 times that year I cannot help him with the actual dates he is questioning. That year I saw among others, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Bo Diddley and many others. Great times.

Dear Ron (May 4th) - Thu, May 7th, 2015 11:56 AM PDT
Thank you for your question. We've had a few people asking about that book, and though John has done some interviews with Dinu over the years he hasn't seen the book, so is unable to give any comment until he has. - johnmayall.com

Tim Pratt - Thu, May 7th, 2015 7:07 AM PDT
Thanks for the info! I was hoping that it was a tape issue and not an edit due to time restraints...the cd is 76+ minutes long which is close to the max. Anyway,have played it through 3 times and love it!...tim

Brian - Thu, May 7th, 2015 2:15 AM PDT
Just great to hear a young Peter Green live. The solo on So Mamy Roads is fantastic but there is also a beautifully restrained and constructed solo on Hi Heel Sneakers ! Good to hear John cracking out the solos on the old Hammond organ as well. Great stuff.

Dear Tim (5th May) - Wed, May 6th, 2015 10:14 PM PDT
We asked John about the fade out on "So Many Roads," and it turns out that Rob is exactly right! The tape ran out at that point which is why the song ends like that. It is a shame, but it we think it still makes for great listening. - johnmayall.com

Rob - Wed, May 6th, 2015 7:57 PM PDT
Tim, I haven't heard "Live 67" yet. Back in the day, recording was done on magnetic tape, which had a limited length. It was not unusual for the tape to run out in the middle of a song during a live performance. It was also not unusual to miss the beginning of a song while the reel of tape was being changed. At least we have what we got!

Tim Pratt - Tue, May 5th, 2015 1:00 PM PDT
Listening(again!) to the "Live In '67 cd and am wondering why "So Many Roads" is cut off before the song ends.My first reaction was "there ought to be a law against this!!!". I'd rather have the complete version than 7+ minutes of"Hi Heel Sneakers""

Ron - Mon, May 4th, 2015 10:54 PM PDT
I see AMAZON are listing a new book for pre order......John Mayall: The Blues Crusader Hardcover – December 1, 2015 by Dinu Logoz (Author)
Any comment?

Mark Dirga - Mon, May 4th, 2015 9:59 AM PDT
John Mayall was the first concert I ever saw. It was 1970 or 1971 at the Honolulu International Center. Loved it! I remember the opening band was Froggy and the Phantom Leopard. Now, I have tickets to see JM in Melbourne, Florida on May 15th, 2015. Super excited. Been a concert hound ever since that first show. Seen hundreds of bands. Got tickets to 20 shows this year alone. But, this is the one I'm most excited about. Can't wait. Thank You, John Mayall for touring.

Hi!
Can you help??
I want to know what kind of harmonicas does mayall plays?? i'll be thankful!

Richard Brown - Sun, Apr 26th, 2015 11:38 AM PDT
Re:- Live in 1967.... Can you please clear up some dates for me Febuary 1st 1967 surely Anysley Dunbar was on drums I thought Mick Fleetwood joined in April that year, also according to "Strange Brew" book John Mayall was at the Oxford Cellar Norwich on that date not The Ram Jam Club. and also The April 28th gig was at the Ram Jam Club in Brixton not Klooks Kleek. Please can you help sort the confusion. Great cd though.

Roy Burton - Sat, Apr 25th, 2015 11:42 PM PDT
Hi John, many thanks for taking the time to reply, I have followed you from 1965, met you many times over the years at various UK gigs, I was at the Bromley gig from the 67 era all those years ago too and hoped you would put it out as a complete show, you have also over the years autographed my entire collection of flyers, tickets, programmes, posters etc dating back that far too, also have all the albums and last saw you at Birmingham Symphony Hall.Take care and hope to see you soon.

Chris - Sat, Apr 25th, 2015 4:04 PM PDT
I'm loving the new "Live In 1967" cd. Peter Green's playing on this could be the best blues guitar I've ever heard in my life. I've always liked his playing, but this CD takes it to a new level. Wow!

Ron - Sat, Apr 25th, 2015 8:20 AM PDT
Thanks for the reply to my April 8th question. I had the "Blues Alive NYC" as a suprise present yesterday. It came from Amazon so if it is a bootleg I am shocked!!!
The sound quality is good and John, Gary Rowles and the band turn in quality performances. I am just reporting this as I feel John should know the position.

Dear Ron (Apr 19th) - Mon, Apr 20th, 2015 1:45 PM PDT
Thank you for the question. The bass players on "To a Princess" would be Larry Taylor and Steve Thompson. Good to hear that you're still enjoying it! - johnmayall.com

Ron Zwang - Sun, Apr 19th, 2015 10:44 PM PDT
Who played the "lead bass" on "For a Princess"? I can never tire of listening to it.

Lori Stripay - Wed, Apr 15th, 2015 7:32 PM PDT
Please come to Piittsburgh or Greensburg, Pennsylvania (the palace theater?)

Dear Roy (9th March) - Thu, Apr 9th, 2015 2:28 PM PDT
These are live recordings taken from those 5 shows. John picked the best of versions of the songs from each recording to release in the CD, and they're pretty amazing. We don't think you'll be disappointed! - johnmayall.com

Dear Ron (Apr 8th) - Thu, Apr 9th, 2015 2:24 PM PDT
Yes, we saw that "Live in 1976" release too! It is a bootleg and not an official release and we haven't heard it, so can't give any other feedback on it. - johnmayall.com

Rob - Wed, Apr 8th, 2015 10:01 PM PDT
My views on Melbourne 2015...

It was my first Mayall concert, and I've been a fan since the early '70's. For me the standout track was "Back From Korea" from the "Memories" album - I was not familiar with it, but for me the song and delivery was by far the best of the night (which had consistently good playing and performing).

But I had some disappointment. I read the review of the Sydney performance on 2 April, which suggests that they got an extra 30mins compared with Melb. They also got "Room to Move", which I would have loved, but I accept that setlists do change when the artist has a huge repetior to select from.

Two things really took away from the performance for me (both for the same reason). Firstly, the arrangements were very full, designed to fill the auditorium with sound. It's normal for bands to do this these days, and some people like it. But for me it took away from what makes John's music so enjoyable and musical - the air between the notes and the meaning in the economy of the arrangements (listen to the first dozen records). Secondly, the audio was over-compressed, again removing any light and shade from the excellent musicianship. Yes, I'm aware that it's fashionable now-days (just listen to the horrible compressed sound on new and recently-remastered CDs), but it doesn't make for enjoyable and musical extended listing. I don't know if this sound was by design, or because of poor competence by the sound engineer (Mayall did need to tell him to reduce the sound levels a couple of songs into the set). Current audio fashion does not mean quality, and I would have hoped that Mayall would have the integrity to go with quality and not fashion.

But despite these disappointments, I'm glad to have finally seen the legend perform.

Rob - Wed, Apr 8th, 2015 9:44 PM PDT
Roy - "The World of John Mayall" was my first LP. 'Walking on a Sunset' jumped, and I tried to repair it with a needle, only to make the jump worse. Still have the vinyl, but there is not much left in the grooves from the repeated playing on the cheap record player I had at the time. I'd like to get a good condition replacement. It's a great compilation, although the tracks span a few years it has great cohesion.

"The World of..." record series was a budget label. The tracks were probably licenced for the LP to be in print for a few years. It would be highly unlikely for it to be released on CD, especially considering the number of CD compilations released of Mayall's work.

Ron - Wed, Apr 8th, 2015 10:31 AM PDT
I see ALL YOUR MUSIC are listing a "John Mayall live in 1976 "CD. Is this with John's blessing or a bootleg?

David Caldwell - Wed, Apr 8th, 2015 1:50 AM PDT
Great concert last night in Melbourne!
Its amazing to think of all the great musicians that have had their time in the band and the current members are right up there with the best!

Jeff Peck - Wed, Apr 8th, 2015 12:04 AM PDT
Well a long time fan since hearing the Bluesbreakers album with Eric Clapton when I was about 15 and still at high school, still knocked out by Hideaway. First time Mayall concert goer last night here in Melbourne Australia. Fantastic, still hearing the gig over and over in my head. Keep kicking arse. The Blues is alive and healthy.

Helen White - Tue, Apr 7th, 2015 10:44 PM PDT
Absolutely amazing performance in Melbourne last night. Could have listened to you and the band for many more hours and hours and hours.
Hope you return back to Australia in the very near future.
I will certainly be there.

Keith Grosvenor - Tue, Apr 7th, 2015 8:32 PM PDT
Saw the show at the Melbourne Recital Centre. Great show, great musicianship. My brother took me to festival hall in the early '70's and it was wonderful to be able to repay the favour last night.
And really nice to get the autographs of all the band after the show.
Looking forward to the next visit...

Rosemary Simpson - Tue, Apr 7th, 2015 6:33 PM PDT
Fabulous night in Melbourne last night. DoesJohn have any advice or suggestions on how to stay healthy and so fit for your hordes of now senior citizen fans can be inspired by your obvious example?

Yolanda - Tue, Apr 7th, 2015 10:15 AM PDT
I attended the Brisbane show on Sunday 5th April at the Powerhouse theatre. What a fantastic night! I loved every minute of it and although disabled and so not able to dance I did jog around in my seat and could not stop my toes from tapping. I loved the band and the great smiles and nods of heads towards each other as they played. John told us that we were all very quiet and respectful - but that's what you do to a legend! I have had and still have a tough life but this concert made me very happy. Thanks to all and thanks for being available for autographs and album sales very special.

Robin & Lynne McRae - Mon, Apr 6th, 2015 9:00 PM PDT
Went up from country Victoria to Sydney to 'tick a box' and see John Mayall 'one last time' on 2nd April after seeing him at Festival Hall, Melbourne probably 43 years ago. Same as most other comments here I guess, he has got better with age. Best of the 4 shows Lynne & I have seen over the years. Interactive and a content man at his best with a great band - giving up the 'hard drink' must be the thing to do John. Absolutely brilliant, I suspect it won't be the last time!

Peter Clarkin - Sun, Apr 5th, 2015 5:51 AM PDT
Saw John and the band perform at the Powerhouse, Brisbane on the 5th April. I first bought a John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers album in 1965 and remain a fan today. I waited almost fifty years to see the band live and I must say, "it was worth the wait" . I was blown away by the show and I won't be waiting so long to see them again. Many thanks for all the years of great music you've delivered.

Rene' and Judith - Sat, Apr 4th, 2015 8:06 PM PDT
Many Thanks for a wonderful evening in Sydney on April 2th, you are just as good and perfect as when we saw you in Denmark in 1993 and 1994, our desire to see you again after we moved in 1995 to Australia came true.The group is fantastic and so lovely down to earth, we enjoyed ourselves with them for a little chat and autographs after the concert

Ole Strand - Sat, Apr 4th, 2015 3:06 AM PDT
When I saw you in Oslo in November 2012,I asked you when you were coming to Australia. So happy that you made it. Saw you at the BluesFest today 4th April! Enjoyed it immensly! So many roads is definitely my favourite!

Steve Gustus - Thu, Apr 2nd, 2015 2:49 PM PDT
John,
Thanks to you and the band for a great concert in Sydney last night. Apart from a spectacular rendition of the perennial favourite Room To Move, the standout was the new song Drifting Blues. You are amazing and an inspiration to us all to keep doing what we love.

David York - Wed, Mar 25th, 2015 4:00 PM PDT
Mr. Mayall (I was going to start with Dear John) but figure that would not be what I want to start a coversation with
I served in Viet-Nam from 1969-1970....and I had your record album "John Mayall and the Buesbrekers..With Eric Clapton"
So here is my question.
On the album cover the words "
"CLAPTON IS GOD"....was in graffitie red paint...
Do you ever recall such an album cover being printed.
If not that's OK
At 71 yrs old...maybe my mind is going.
Anyway if you want to answer that would be good; If not it's still all good.
LAST TIME I GOT TO GO TO ONE OF YOUR CONCERTS WAS IN PRESCOTT, AZ.(1993 maybe 94)
You walked on stage and said "This is like playing in a Dixie Cup"....And if I remember right "Little Johnny Taylor was in the crowd..Dave York; Prescott Valley, Az.

Sad news of the death of Andy Fraser. I saw him play bass with John & The Bluesbreakers when he was 15 years old before he joined Free.
RIP Andy

I saw the Jersey City, NJ show in Feb. 1969 with Procol Harum. Can someone tell me who was in the Bluesbreakers line-up for that gig??

Henrik - Mon, Mar 16th, 2015 1:03 AM PDT
Thanks, Dinu Logoz, for your info. I´m looking forward to reading the book. There must be loads of untold stories about John´s long, impressive career. He´s one of the greatest blues musicians ever,and his story deserves to be told.

Hi John!

Hello Henrik
I'm the guy named Dinu Logoz who wrote the Mayall Biography THE BLUES CRUSADER. I am sure you will like it and learn a lot of new things about John and his music when you'll read it. And yes, I've been in regular contact with John Mayall who always kindly helped me whenever I didn't know this or that detail.
The book will by released next September, you can order it at Amazon already from now on, I think.
It was a pleasure writing it!
Have a good read and long live the blues!
Dinu

Live in 1967?
Is this release from one entire show as there are 5 shows i believe, or is this just a compilation? If its the latter then i think it will be dissapointing for the long time fan and collector.

Henrik - Sat, Mar 7th, 2015 8:55 AM PST
I just saw that there´s a biography on John on the street ("John Mayall - The blues crusader - His Life,His Music,His Bands" , by a guy named Dinu Logoz). It was about time. I just Wonder if John himself has contributed to this book? Anyone out there who have read it?

I'm sitting here in my home in Ireland & wondering if I'll ever get the pleasure of seeming John Mayall & Bluesbreakers
live, in the meantime I still have the vinyl of Steppin'Out in my attic, you never know, what great music

Roy Robart - Thu, Mar 5th, 2015 1:06 AM PST
The blues album that started it for me was "The World of John Mayall" and I went on to see JM live many times, even shaking his hand in Brisbane after a gig. I still have the vinyl, but no spinner. Has that album ever been released digitally?

Yves GENSOUS - Thu, Mar 5th, 2015 12:11 AM PST
Hi John,
Thanks for all these years.
The 1st time I saw you in January 1970
in Metz (France).
I'm waiting the release "Live in 1967"

You got it!

Jerry F - Sat, Feb 28th, 2015 12:00 PM PST
Dear Mr. Mayall, Thank you so much for all of the terrific music you've made over the years. I learned to play the harmonica by listening to your recordings. Although I enjoy so many of your songs, 'Red Sky' is one of my favorite blues songs from any artist ever. You are truly an irreplaceable talent. Best wishes!

Dear Alex (23rd Feb) - Thu, Feb 26th, 2015 11:08 AM PST
It's always great to hear enthusiastic requests for John and the band to play in different places, but we're sorry to say that they most likely won't be back in Scotland or Wales this year. Hopefully next year! - johnmayall.com

Dear Mike (21st Feb) - Wed, Feb 25th, 2015 10:51 AM PST
Thank you for your question. We checked the King Center website today, and they do have John's show listed on the 15th May if you click on the calendar. They may just have added it, but it's there now. It does mention though that the tickets don't go on sale until midday on the 6th March, so you won't be able to purchase your tickets until then. We hope you enjoy the show! - johnmayall.com

Product Description
Before they were Fleetwood Mac, they were John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. Never before heard live performances from 1967. In 1967, before there was a Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood were John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. The four musicians were only together for three months, which makes it even more remarkable that a staunch fan from Holland was able to sneak a one channel reel to reel tape recorder into five London clubs and capture this exciting glimpse into music history. For almost fifty years these tapes have remained unheard until John recently got them and began restoring them with the technical assistance of Eric Corne of Forty Below Records. Corne adds "While the source recording was very rough and the final result is certainly not hi-fidelity, it does succeed in allowing us to hear how spectacular these performances are."
